If you want hot robot action on a budget, the only choice is the super-functional Tomy Omnibot
. With built in tape deck and remote control, and gripping hand, he truly is your plastic pal who's fun to be with
. Better than that Aibo
shit any day. This red eyed automaton was always out of my financial league when I was a kid. There was also an even more futuristic looking Omnibot 2000
. If you can find one of these today, and the wierd custom batteries they used, you are damn lucky.
I remember going to a gadget store in a mall in D.C.
and marvelling over these things that would be commonplace in the 21st Century
. Where did it all go wrong?
